In the meantime, here’s what you need to know about tooth implants and how they affect your eating habits. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation for dental implants at any of our Robinson Dental locations.
Dental Implants Don’t Slip
Nothing is more discouraging than having your dentures slip in the middle of a meal. While it’s easy to correct slipping dentures (just gently bite down and swallow), it doesn’t make it any less embarrassing when you’re out in public with friends and family.
Once dentures slip, food can get caught underneath the appliance and irritate your gums. The only way to remove these food particles is to brush or soak your dentures after eating. Most patients would prefer to avoid this inconvenience if at all possible, which is why they ask about the dental implant procedure.
Since dentures sit on top of your gums, they’re more prone to slippage. Dental implants, on the other hand, are anchored in the jawbone which makes them a permanent and long-lasting solution to tooth loss.

Dental Implants Don’t Block Taste Buds
Did you know that some of your taste buds are on the roof of your mouth? If you wear upper dentures, you may have noticed a reduction in your ability to taste. Some people who wear upper dentures may resort to adding more seasoning than a recipe may call for in order to continue enjoying their favorite foods.
The good news is that dental implants are able towithout blocking taste buds. This means that you’ll be able to enjoy your food to the fullest again.
Dental Implants Function Like Natural Teeth
Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. This gives you the confidence you need to eat your favorite foods without fear of your prosthetic teeth slipping. Instead, tooth implants are embedded deep in the jaw to give you the ultimate stability while you chew. No more trading in steak for softer foods! Dental implants allow you to eat whatever chewy foods you want.
Built to Last a Lifetime
One of the benefits of dental implants is that they’re designed to last you a lifetime with proper care. The dental crown on top of an implant will require replacement from time to time, but we can easily monitor its condition during your routine checkups at Robinson Dental.
